Cardinal Pet Care Donates Grooming Products to Animal Rescue Group
In an effort to help homeless pets find forever homes, Cardinal Pet Care donated nearly 2,500 grooming products from its Gold Medal brand to Paw Works. A clean, well-groomed pet is more likely to be adopted than an unkempt one, company officials said.
Paw Works, a Ventura County, Calif.-based animal rescue group, has helped more than 6,000 dogs and cats since its founding four years ago, officials said. The group is credited with helping Ventura County become the first major county in Southern California to achieve “no kill” status, according to officials.
“When Cardinal Pet Care heard of the amazing work Paw Works has been doing to save the lives of abandoned pets, we immediately wanted to join their effort,” said Tony de Vos, president of Cardinal Pet Care in Azusa, Calif. “As a manufacturer of pet grooming products that has been in business for more than 70 years, we know what a huge difference grooming can make in enhancing a pet’s appeal and increasing its chances of adoption. It gives us great pleasure to know that our products will be used by Paw Works for this purpose.”
The donated Gold Medal products include medicated shampoo, breath spray, tear stain remover and antiseptic spray.
